Air conditioners are supposed to make your living spaces cooler. When you turn it on, you’ll expect it to function as it’s supposed to, emit cool air and make you feel refreshed. However, there are instances where homeowners have complained about a foul smell coming from none other than their air conditioner the moment they turn it on. Some homeowners have even described the stench similar to a pair of used gym socks that were stuck in their air conditioner.
No one wants a foul smelling air conditioner because not only does it makes you feel uncomfortable, it also makes you feel queasy and it defeats the very purpose of providing you comfort. We all know air conditioners are expensive. When they observe their air conditioners acting up, such as emitting an unpleasant odour, it is normal for them to feel worried. But worry no more because this isn’t a hopeless case.
Possible causes for bad odour include dead animals such as rats, mice, snakes, and geckos. Decayed vegetation and mildew or mould could also be possible causes for the smell. Whenever you sense that something is wrong, don’t attempt to fix your air conditioner yourself or do DIY air conditioner cleaning because not only are you exposing yourself to harm (think of electrical wirings and gases in your air conditioner), but you could also be compromising your air conditioner’s longevity and possible warranty.
Sure, you can find tons of information online that offers a step-by-step guide on how to effectively remove the odour on your own, but with the high price of air conditioners, you just can’t afford to risk it. The solution for such a problem is simple and easy yet is often overlooked. We strongly advise that you leave the job to the experts who have undergone training and who know exactly what to do in a crisis such as this. When your air conditioner starts to emit bad odours the best possible solution is to simply have it cleaned “properly and professionally”.
